with the war in iraq when george w. bush ran for reelection against john kerry, but voters by a small margin seemed to believe george bush would be the better leader. it cannot be said that the vote reflected a referendum on george w. bush's first term. the importance of the communications skill of a candidate to not be discounted as a factor, however. but all of this misses a different valuation that needs to be taken into account in judging between incumbent barack obama and his challenger mitt romney. that is the jinx of the second term on many presidents. only seven of 19 presidents elective to a second term avoided having a troubled or failed second term. that would give the country about a 38% chance of obama and the nation experiencing an improved security and economic climate after four years if obama is reelected. i do not suggest the gamble should not be taken. simply that history interplay in with politics might give us pause. what does history predict about a second term for barack obama? were he reelected with so few presidents having success at that time in office? what are the

the republican was george bush and the day before the election he went and campaigned in pennsylvania. and the next day, george bush lost pennsylvania. last time around as well the sunday before the election, there's john mccain campaigning in pennsylvania. and then john mccain loses pennsylvania. right before the election, you can set your watch by it. the republican presidential contender will go and campaign in pennsylvania. and every year the media responds by saying, wow the republican is going to pennsylvania. maybe the republicans are going to win pennsylvania this year. does this mean the republicans are planning on winning pennsylvania this year e. and the republicans say, yes, we're going there because we're going to win pennsylvania and they lose it every year. the reason they do this every year is because they want to be seen as super confident. they want to be seen as so confident they are expanding the map. they want to create the impression that they are going to win big. they don't need to go to the so-called battleground states. they have locked all those up. they hav
is a loser. >> not bean counters. >> laura: i think we are doing a great job at that you work for george bush the majority of voters still tag george w. bush with this down economy. and, look, i mean, we couldn't even win the argument on foreign policy in part because a lot of people are sick of the two wars that george w. bush got us into. that's just a fact. gorgeous george w. bush's type of republic party mitt romney as todd akin richard mourdock in another. >> very good with latinos, kevin mccarthy. we have some bright new leaders and we need to have more of those. >> george w. bush's policies spending and two wars ended up also delivering barack obama into the white house. but let's start with you, chip. your take where we are. what do you think of my point that romney ran a defensive campaign but he also did have to deal with the bush baggage, credibility on spending, and a foreign policy that was frankly the by product of the hopeful but ultimately rather confused and unsuccessful policy in the middle east? >> yeah. i think you are spot on. first, let me say i aspire to be one of those
george w. bush, who tried briefly to governor as a kind of bipartisan moderate, but then turned markedly conservative. so in those days you have the same kind of democratic rage against that republican president that you now have in reverse. it's very difficult to see where the middle ground would be for either of these candidates, and it won't be any easier if we have a narrow result, because that will mean the new president, whoever he is, doesn't have a terrificcally strong mandate from the public. won't be able to say, look, an enormous majority of the public wants to go my way. if this election is very narrow or even worse, contested, the president is going to have a very demanding job. >> when you speak to voters in ohio, everybody says they want compromise, they want to get things done. do they? >> no. by and large when you talk to american voters, and you've done this yourself, i know, yes, everybody wants compromise and everyone wants bipartisanship. but usually the definition of bipartisanship is the other side should come in my direction. so that's a hazard for any candidate,
that most americans or a majority of americans still blame president george w. bush for the economic woes they face right now. >> you know, it's remarkable, george. three years and ten months into the obama presidency, a majority of voters, in fact by a 15-point marriagen voters blame george w. bush, not barack obama for the current state of the economy and those voters are overwhelmingly voting for obama for re-election. george w. bush is the most unpopular second-term president in the post-war era following him into the presidency is for barack obama, the gift that keeps on giving. >> nicolle wallace, you've worked for george w. bush. you saw one thing, one dynamic in the entire campaign is mitt romney did not want to be tethered to the economic policies of george w. bush and, of course, president bush did not come to the convention. >> right, you know, he really was an invisible figure and republicans i think made a bet -- certainly in 2010 it worked against barack obama to still be blaming george w. bush who would appear based on the things we're looking at tonight that voters were re
president of the u.s. the father of the constitution has also hosted some presidents. george bush stayed there when he was in transition to the white house, so, you know, it's got lots and lots of history going on there. it's also a prime position in d.c. only five blocks from the white house. jfk attended the opening in 1963. it costs about $179 a night. >> let's go west coast now. san francisco. what president has stayed at the fairmont hotel there? >> the first fairmont was opened in 1906 and it's on knob hill so it's a prime, prime position. it's actually where the u.n. was drafted in 1945. lots of history there, too. while you're in san francisco, make sure you take a tram, go across to alcatraz. >> what's the price point? >> that's $279 a night. >> and let's go to the houstonian in houston. i'm sure that's the bush's favorite. >> you might see george bush in the restaurant or barbara bush in the spa. there's also an enormous activity center. they've got a rock climbing wall, lots of personal trainers. it's a really, really fun place to hang out, and that costs 179. it's also near t
, a romney adviser, led republicans to victory from a supreme court battle between george w. bush and al gore in 2000. >> i'm clearing my calendar just in case i need to be ready for the next five weeks. >> reporter: he says if elections officials want to avoid litigation, they shoumtd change direction in the middle of the game. >> if you follow the rules that were in place on election day with respect to counting the ballots, then the presumptive outcome will be respected when the electoral college votes are counted. >> but the truth is there could be other changes to the rules especially as states affected by the superstorm get ready for the election. joe johns, cnn, washington. >>> and tonight a program note. cnn's anderson cooper and wolf blitzer are taking a closer look at where the candidates are focusing their attention and whether the battleground states might hold any surprises. "america's choice 2012:countdown to election day" air force tonight at 8:00 eastern. >>> people in many of the smaller coastal towns devastated by superstorm sandy depend on summer tourism to survive, but the
here. this is the way george w. bush ran his presidency. whether you liked or didn't like george w. bush, he was always out there being a salesman. it's the reality that we live in a entire campaign. it is strictly the only way to do this business. >> now, it would seem also, victoria, that the president is in a better position to really make his case. his approval rating is 52%. congress's approval rating is only 18%. so with him on the road with that kind of gap in who has the higher approval numbers, which is no comparison, that's got to put some pressure on members of congress. >> absolutely. and, again, he's coming off the wave of the outreach wave of the 2012 campaign. it is really important he sells this policy, even though people indicate they support it, because at the same time, even though republicans are complaining that he's going on the road, republicans themselves right now are organizing themselves, house republicans, to take their own show on the road. so, the president is going to have pressure and competition from republican house members. it cannot sell itself,
wants to return the rates to. and the 2000s which he did not mention when george bush followed the policies very similar to what mitt romney is proposing, they actually added more than 1 million fewer private sector jobs if george bush's first term than president obama has under his first term so i really do not think that the basic economics or the history says that just going back to deregulation and high rate-- high income rate cuts is the thing that leads to growth. >> brown: and do you think professor -- >> two decades of strong growth, we saw two decade, 80ous and 90s with extraordinary growth. economists called it the great moderation long boom and that's because the stable policies are put in place. tax reform, if you like, of 1986. a bipartisan reform president reagan worked with democrats in congress, that is the kind of thing we nude to get the strong economy back. >> back to you pfessor goolsbee, just this question about -- >> i agree with that i think tax reform and a grand bargain type budget deal if done in a balanced way would be a good achievement for both part
kind of promise and the political sciences say george bush was the most polarized presidency. it's a condition of life and what obama's hoping is that republicans if he's re-elected sort of collapse a little bit in exhaustion and work with him in a short period of time. >> and regardless if it's a popular electoral split, it's going to be close. almost 50% of the country will feel disenchanted with whoever is elected. and the fault lines will be quite amazing. >> let's talk about where we were last week. it felt like there was momentum in mitt romney's direction. where are they tonight? >> there was some momentum still building off that successful denver debate. and then it sort of hit the reality of two more debates after that and the continuing campaign. and i think that this momentum was starting to slow before the hurricane hit. but certainly the hurricane had a piece of this. the fact that the president gets to look presidential. you had him up there with his bomber jacket in air force one. >> and chris christie of endorsed hip. -- hymn. >> -- endorsed him. >> we talk about
y george bush, el encuentro es positivo dijo el líder de la mayoría del senado, creo que envia un estupendo mensaje al pueblo estadounidense, tuvieron unas elecciones amargas, habla bien de los dos que se sienten a almorzar, muchos republicanos le dieron la espalda a mitt romney, pero algunos creen que promueve el bipartidismo . >> ser una persona que puede tratar de poner a los dos partidos un poco de acuerdo en algo . >> mitt romney también se reunió en privado con pau ryan, el primer encuentro entre ambos, el servicio secreto dijo que un hombre que se paró en la camioneta de mitt romney fue arrestado por asaltar a la policía . >> el presidente de los estados unidos barack obama como mitt romney quisieron una conversación totalmente privada dijo el portavoz, por otra parte adfirmó que no había planes para ofrecerle un cargo en la administración como algunos especulaban. >> el ex presidente estadounidense george bush padre es tratado en un hospital en texas por una bronquitis, dicen que el ex mandatario está en condición estable y se epsera que le den de alta en las pro
the issues concerned about, george bush sold the government in record form number one. [ overlapping speakers >> the tea party did not form its functionality to the degree it did under obama under george bush. [ overlapping speakers >> just a second, dave. is it possible that the resistance didn't happen just on partisan issues? they wanted to hurt a democrat and help a republican. wasn't because he was black or white. >> we're talking about effect not intent. the intent was we're going to resist the democrats. but we've never seen the kind of feverish resistance to a president that has been manifest. if we correlate them logically, we have to say black man symbolic head of government. they went after eric holder and barack obama. that's not a coincidence. that's part of the infrastructure ideologically speaking of the tea party they're not honest about. >> this race game, mark, as you know, i'm going to kept my calm here, pisses me off. a couple of reasons why. the objection on race was not there. that's a distraction. moody, jelena, doesn't make a decision on downgrading or ratings based on
months of 2007 george bush went to nancy pelosi and harry reid and said i need a, guess what, stimulus. that terrible word. pelosi and reid worked with him to do that. then in 2008 they came to us. john, you and i worked together on the whole response to the financial. i believe we had in 2007, 2008, this is not a longstanding problem. a great deal of cooperation in the bush administration. i do believe that there were elected some people in 2010, tea party influence, who reputinated the notion of compromise, and someave said it exclusively. i think partisanship, you have to start from a position of principle and then you work together. i think in 2007 and 2008 we showed how can you do that. >> candy, let me join in the general hopefulness that we're going to avoid the fiscal cliff, but it's not a done deal. it's not a certainty. the reason is the country -- the government is on automatic pilot to the fiscal cliff, to massive tax increases and really horrible spending cuts on january 1st unless we act, so if congress does -- congress has gotten pretty good at doing these days, we'll go
to return the rates to. and the 2000s which he did not mention when george bush followed the policies very similar to what mitt romney is proposing, they brief last word on that? >> well, i think as we are talking about four years what is going to happen the next four years. that say time where a president can make a tremendous difference. and we're talking about the past four years. and the president could have made auch betr policy with the unemployment being so high. >> brown: all right, john taylor and austan goolsbee, thanks so much. >> thank you >> brown: and if you're ready for more analysis on the jobs numbers, you'll find it, as always, on paul solman's "making sense" page online. >> woodruff: still to come on the newshour: misery in the aftermath of the super-storm; civilian deaths in syria; a spotlight on immigration in iowa; plus, shields and brooks. but first, the other news of the day. here's kwame holman. >> holman: the news on bs wasn't enough to lift wall street today. instead, stocks sank on worries that the costs of hurricane sandy will eat into profits. the dow jones in
. and the 2000s which he did not mention when george bush followed the policies very similar to what mitt romney is proposing, theyic if one or e other is elected. >> right. you know, i was in the white house for a while and i used to joke, i crawled all around in the basement, i have yet to find that switch down there that you just flip it and then everything gets better. i think 90 plus percent of what happens in a growing economy has nothing to do with washington. what the president and what washington in general can do is try to set the stage and set a groundwork for policy at could encourage growth. and i think the shorter term that you are thinking about, the less can be done specifically by the president. so if you are asking over a one month or three month period, there's very little the president can do. if you start asking over a five year, ten year period, then the policy decisions they make can influence quite a lot the way things go. >> brown: and john taylor, brief last word on that? >> well, i think as we are talking about four years what is going to happen the next four years. th
a democratic president getting a lower percentage of the white vote than george bush got in 2004, your election of t hispanic vote, that's also a big structural problem. the promise of barack obama in 2004, just to state the obvious, when he first sprang on natial attention with the "we're not red america, we're not blue america, we're not white, we're not black" that's been eviscerated. we clearly have an electorate that's divided in long term structural ways along racial lines. >> and regional lines. >> and the goal of either party would be -- and gender lines and the goal of either party would be to change that. >> rose: an election preview when we continue. captioning sponsored by rose communications from our studios in new york city, this is charlie rose. >> rose: tonight we enter the final hours of 2012's presidential election. tuesday may be the main event but tens of millions have already voted. reduction of early voting hours in key states have raised questions about the propriety of campaign tactics. both sides are preparing for possible legal challenges in a sign that the contest mig
